Installing Sims 2 Expansion Packs & Stuff Packs

Post Views: 9,241

When possible, I recommend installing the expansion packs in order. The expansion packs build upon the previous one released and include patches for previous expansions. In theory, installing the expansions in the order they were released should save you a lot of problems in the long run. I hope this tutorial is useful.

The Sims 2″ Expansion Pack Order

  • “The Sims 2 University”
  • “The Sims 2 Nightlife”
  • “The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack” (A Stuff Pack)
  • “The Sims 2 Open for Business”
  • “The Sims 2 Family Fun” (A Stuff Pack)
  • “The Sims 2 Glamour Life” (A Stuff Pack)
  • “The Sims 2 Pets”
  • “The Sims 2 Happy Holiday” (A Stuff Pack)
  • “The Sims 2 Seasons”

  • Also if you have The Sims 2 Deluxe, Nightlife is included on the discs, once that is installed then you can start by installing expansions after installing “The Sims 2 University”.

Hmm, interesting. I tend to install them willy-nilly, no wonder I have problems! Thanks for this!
